The goal of the 2018 CPS Challenge was to use a quadrotor aircraft with downward facing cameras, and possibly other sensors, to search an area for interesting objects, and land at a position where directed. The challenge was designed for undergraduate teams participating in a capstone project course. Teams were expected to have a mentor who is a graduate student, or a faculty member that can provide direction and suggest technical approaches. All solutions involved both software and hardware. The final challenge was held in Tucson, AZ in the Spring of 2018 (travel support was provided to invited finalists).

The 2017 CPS Challenge was a Spring 2017 student competition focused on model-based design for a self-driving car.

The challenge aimed to broaden participation in Cyber-Physical Systems, and was run in the spirit of the DARPA Robotics Challenge as a competition in four phases. The Challenge provided an exciting opportunity for students to build a component that controls and runs on a real self-driving car--the University of Arizona's CAT Vehicle.

The 2016 CPS Challenge provided engineering students the opportunity to validate their analytic studies through a real-world vehicle design and verification experience. Student teams architected, designed, fabricated, predicted, and demonstrated the flying and maneuvering capabilities of an unmanned, electric and/or non-electric powered, radio controlled or autonomous vehicle with reliable pickup/dropoff of payload, practical and affordable manufacturing requirements, and high overall vehicle performance.
